Invasive Plant Patrol 101 ~ Online Course
Part 2 – How to Hunt for Aquatic Invaders
Participation in this course is required for anyone wishing to receive IPP certification
LSM’s Invasive Plant Patrol 101 online course is comprised of three parts:
- Part 1 provides a general introduction to the threat of aquatic invaders;
- Part 2 provides guidance for conducting an invasive plant screening survey, including discussion of tools and techniques;
- Part 3 takes a deep dive into Aquatic Plant ID with a focus on the eleven invasive aquatic plants considered to be most imminent threats to our state, and their native look-a-likes.
Participants who wish to receive IPP certification must take (and pass) the short online quiz at the conclusion of each course section. The quizzes are optional for all others.
Please Note: To become a fully certified IPPer you must receive a score 70% or better on all three quizzes and participate in one in-person IPP training (Live Plant ID or Plant Paddle). If you are unable to attend an in-person event, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn of an alternative way to meet the plant identification requirement. Once you have fulfilled all of the above certification requirements, please complete this certification form and send it to email@example.com.
